why experts say you should give yourself time to get to the airport and get on your flight. >> 16-0. the warriors have gotten off to the best start in nba history. what could be next for the undefeated champs. got my lip liner on, lashes on, ready to go. >> perfect 10. >> thank you for joining us this wednesday, november 25th, the day before thanksgiving. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> good morning. i'm dave clark. let's check weather and traffic. was it cold coming in? >> well , i'm always cold, but steve wasn't joking. >> it's mostly clear. we had some rain overnight and a little bit of snow. it continues up in the sierra. things are winding down but not completely. they're still getting some from mammoth, up to tahoe and truckee. for us it's the cold air coming in. few clouds around, mostly sunny.
cool and breezy. highs will be in the 50s. bundle up. it's cold. overnight some of that rain again. left some okay amounts. it's cold in pacifica. that's all you need to know. thank you, vic . and william tweedy, vallejo currently 35 degrees. rainfall total only .08. could have used more. don't worry. there might be more coming in back on saturday. things are kind of winding down but they're not done completely. we are though. 30 in santa rosa. 30 in nap a airport. 32 in fairfield. 30s for palo alto, san ramon, livermore. yes, it's cold, even from cupertino, los gatos, close for santa cruz and morgan hill and gilroy. our low zooms out of the picture but not completely. i say that because we're on the drier side but it
may retrograde or head back from the sierra nevada for us by saturday. clouds and sun, mostly sunny. breezy and cool. 50s. 7 :02. how are things on this wednesday? >> things are mostly good. i do want to start off with a little bit of breaking news in san francisco. there is a house fire reported by the fire department at 42nd and judah. it's actually on 42nd street and i'm looking for the address as we speak here but it is not affecting traffic so much but there's a lot of fire activity here so roughly the area of 42nd and judah, that's good enough now to avoid. the rest of san francisco and really the rest of the bay bridge is becoming a lot lighter as the morning wears on. the bay bridge does have a little bit of a backup but it's not a huge one. it definitely is lighter than usual. remember chp is doing maximum enforcement. that means they'll be looking for speeders. let's move along and take a look at a
picture of 880 north and southbound. definitely a lot of people out there. a lot of people at the airports. 7:02. let's go back to the desk. the holiday getaway is pretty busy at oakland airport this morning. allie rasmus live there. some people saying despite all the talk people weren't expecting the crowd there today. >> we were taken a little bit by surprise when we were driving toward the airport at 4:00 this morning, there were a lot of cars on higenburger. at 5:00 i'd say that's when it was really busy in here. people were getting ready for the 6:00 and 7:00 flights. now you can see the midmorning rush has sort of died down a little bit. seems to be a little bit of a lull here. not too many cars behind us. at one point the security line around 5:30 stretched out from the middle of the terminal in to the baggage claim area but even when it was
busy, those security lines were moving pretty quickly. people seemed to be in good spirits. oakland airport has become a more popular place to fly from. air travel is up 9% compared to a year ago and last year it was up 6% from the year before that. expect your flight today to be pretty full. >> we left our house at 4:30 so there was no traffic but i was surprised that so many people were already here. >> especially in the morning, i was like oh, wow, i didn't think people would wake up this morning to fly. >> the things we do for green bean casserole. >> the transportation security administration says it's stepped up security for this period in the wake of the paris attacks. tsa spokespersons say you can expect more hand swapping, shoe removes, even those with tsa
pre-check status so give yourself extra time if you plan to get on a flight today. the airport connecter here at b.a.r.t. is a pretty good option. they first opened it a year ago and they recently had their 1 millionth passenger so public transit is always a good option. i checked with the airport duty manager and she said the long-term parking lot at the airport is only about 50% full. if you want to drive here and park your car here you should be able to do that. it is early. they're expecting a lot of traffic here later today so that lot could fill up by the end of the day. >> back to that b.a.r.t. connecter, years ago, a couple years ago it was a bus that would take you from the coliseum to the airport. what you have happening behind you is much more efficient and you don't have to pay for parking at the airport. >> right. you get right off the b.a.r.t. at coliseum. then you hop on it right there. you don't have to leave the station. then you take it here to the airport. it has been pretty
popular. 1 million people have ridden it in the last year. >> b.a.r.t. is reserving 400 parking lots for those planning to catch a flight. long-term parking $400 parking lots for those planning to catch a flight. long-term parking costs $5 to $7 a day and you have to reserve your space online. santa clara county opened its emergency cold weather shelters early. is it filling up? >> it wasn't full just yet because people just don't know that it's actually open. i want to show you some of the people who did spend the night here in front of the bicardo reception center. they're just waking up right now. it's registering 39, 40 degrees. it dropped even lower overnight. i want to mention a couple years ago four people died on the streets here in santa clara county because of
hypothermia. and county leaders, they don't want that to happen again. surprisingly, as i mentioned, the cold weather shelters at the gilroy armory and ricardo reception center, there was still beds left. there are about 100 beds at each facility. originally the homeless were told the shelters weren't opening up until november 30th but county leaders decided to change that because of the forecast. temperatures are expected to dip in to the 30s through sunday. they opened up the shelters nearly a week ahead of schedule. we found one man outside who didn't realize the shelters were taking drop-ins and he had such despair in his voice. >> my plan is to just weather it out. just walk the streets and just be a regular person. that's it. >> we told that man about the shelters and he walked in to get some more information and he plans on spending the night at
the reception center. there's an estimated 7,000 homeless people here in santa clara county. even though these cold weather shelters are here for the people to use, it's still not enough for everybody. we asked the staff inside, are you short on anything? they said yes, they desperately need twin sized sheets, blankets, comforters and rain ponchos. it rained earlier this morning. the streets here are still wet. they said the people here you see milling about outside really could use them to take them out when it rains again, possibly next week. >> and you and i were talking earlier. it's cold where you're standing now. we can see the puffs of air coming out of your mouth when you speak. it's cold. >> it is. i know it's going to get colder. it's not too bad now. i'm always naturally cold but i have the long johns on and all these layers. with the
sidewalks wet, we know people sleep in tents on the sleep and those just can't be comfortable. it's good these opened a week early. time now 7:08. it appears a long battle in palo alto over the city's last mobile home park, it's not over yet. the owners of the buena vista mobile home park with el camino have city approval to sell the property to a developer if they paid their tenants to help relocate. those payments could reach $8 million. the owners are going to federal court saying the payment requirement is excessive. the park's 400 low income residents say they're going to need some help finding a new place to live in one of the most expensive cities in the nation. the nba championship golden state warriors now own the record for the best start in league history. 16-0. warriors steamrolled the los angeles lakers last night at oracle
arena, beating them 111-77. steph curry had 24 points to lead the way and nine assists. the historic win by warriors was their 16th straight in the season and that's an nba record. >> whenever you can start a season like that with the high expectations and go unblemished, proud moment for everybody in this locker room. >> we went by and congratulated each player. what they did, they're in the history books. >> sellout crowd of 20,000 fans kept oracle rocking all night long. >> we haven't done very well for a long time. the last few years have been great. >> this is a big deal. this is huge for the bay area for us to have this here is amazing. >> warriors fans say they're confident the team will extend their record and win another championship. up next, the warriors play the phoenix suns friday night. we have complete warriors coverage for you online
including a slideshow of players and fans. it's on the homepage at ktvu.com. >> bravo to them. congratulations. time now 7:10. a lot of people are driving to get away for the long thanksgiving weekend. in 20 minutes, what the chp is doing to keep everybody safe. >> protests erupt in chicago. next, the graphic video the police department has released that shows an officer shooting a teenager. >> morning commute not bad. right now it's getting better as the morning wears on. this is a look at 80. you can see traffic is looking good. we'll tell you more about the bay bridge. >> it's cold out there. a lot of 30s, few upper 20s. it will be a nice day just not very warm. we'll have more on that and what's in store for tomorrow.
imagine a world where the only thing you had to wrestle for on thanksgiving was the last piece of pumpkin pie. and the only place we camped out was in front of a fire and not the parking lot of a store. at t.j.maxx, marshalls and homegoods, we're closed on thanksgiving because family time comes first. let's put more value on what really matters. this season, bring back the holidays. with t.j.maxx, marshalls and homegoods.
2. time is 7:13. protest in chicago overnight mostly peaceful. hundreds of people filled the streets after the release of a video showing an officer shooting and killing a teenager. jason van dyke is charged in first degree murder in the death of 17-year-old laquan mcdonald. the video you're about to see may be disturbing and hard to watch. mcdonald appeared to be veering away from the officer when he was shot. mcdonald is shot. he goes down . the officer keeps shooting. he shot him 16 times according to the video. police say mcdonald was carrying a knife. this shooting occurred in october of last year. last night there were protests across chicago. people upset about what was shown, what they saw in
that video. some have criticized the state's attorney general for taking 13 months to charge the police officer and release that dashcam video. in the end the state's attorney general decided to charge van dyke with murder because it was determined the teenager did not pose an immediate threat to grave bodily harm to that police officer. >> of the eight or more officers on the scene, it was only the defendant who fired his weapon. >> the city of chicago has already agreed to a $5 million settlement with laquan mcdonald's family. meantime, in minneapolis people continued protesting a police shooting there of an african american man even after five protesters were injured by gunfire monday night. hundreds of demonstrators held this silent protest yesterday including people lying in the street. protesters say they want video released of the deadly police shooting of 24-year-old jamar clark 10 days
ago. monday night three white men in ski masks fired shots at the demonstrators. police have arrested three suspects in connection with that shooting. time is 7:16. cal trans is calling the demolition of an old bay bridge pier a success. all environmental goals were met or exceeded. cal trans says no birds or sea mammals were harmed. it shows fish placed in nets 150 feet away from the implosion survived. the report said the impact to water quality was much less than expected. cal trans says there are more assessments to come and this will help with plans for other pier demolitions which could happen next november. a service technician at a texas mercedes dealership is being praised because he did the right thing after he found a bag full of cash in a car that had just been traded in. that technician is juan ibarra. he found a bag with stacks of $100
bills. $50,000. he immediately took the money to one of his bosses. they were able to track down the money's owner, a bail bondsman, who received the money from a client. ibarra said he just wanted to do the right thing and never thought about taking that money for himself. >> money never belonged to me so never thought about keeping the money. you're caught in that moment where you want to do the right thing. i got stuck on that. >> the bail bondsman was very grateful to get that money back. he actually rewarded ibarra with a thank you card and there was cash to go with it. 7:17, sal castaneda, not super busy this morning, are you, sal? >> no but we're watching because anything that's unusual or unexpected could really set you back. let's go out and take a look at the commute now. the traffic is moving along okay if you are driving at the bay bridge. it's become a lot better as you drive through.
the traffic is going to be okay on the bridge as well. also this morning we're looking at a commute where traffic is moving along nicely. northbound traffic a little bit slow there. and 42nd avenue near judah, good area to avoid in the avenues for a small structure fire there. fire department has put it out but it's a good area to avoid because of some delays. 7:18. let's go back to steve. want to thank our observer michael in san francisco, his low this morning is 42. that's the coldest low in san francisco since january 3rd this year. 11 months ago. that's pretty cold. if you're in the city, you live in the city, man, it's cold. that's the coldest it's been in a long time. we have hurricane sandra. this is the strongest hurricane so late in the season. wind is 100 miles per hour,
category 2. looks like the track is going to take it right toward cabo san lucas. that's the impending track, right over cabo san lucas, northern mexico and texas. right now wind 110 miles per hour moving west northwest at 10 miles per hour. 53. the water temps down there are very, very warm. they're very cold here. 53, bodega bay. i expect this to go down to 51, maybe 49. everything is coming right down out of the north. that direction is not going to stop any time soon. cold air going over the relatively warmer weather. speaking of that cold air, currently a chilly brisk 36 with a rainfall amount of just about a third of an inch from yesterday's rain and daly city. 36 in dc is cold. that's for sure. we have a few snow showers continuing in the sierra. that will go probably
through the weekend. that low is not going to go too far away from them. but it is for us. a couple 29 s in napa county. upper 30s palo alto. livermore at 37. there's some really cool readings in the north bay here. winds are 35. 36, petaluma. i know there's some 30s near novato from that site. bodega bay, about an hour and a half ago, two hours, 39 degrees. 32 in ukiah. 20s in cobb mountain. 19 in truckee. 43 down at monterey. there goes our low. track not as far south this time toward arizona but more toward nevada, maybe salt lake city and there are hints it may wrap all the way back around by saturday. for now we're on the drier side. mostly sunnies here. mixed with patchy clouds. that breeze will kick up as the low moves south.
that means temperatures are going to be cool. they'll be in the mid 50s. our system moves out. didn't do too much in the way of rainfall until you're by santa cruz. cold tomorrow. mostly sunny friday . temperatures will start to bump back up by then. very cold out. >> kind of damp. >> kind of uncomfortable for us but this weather can actually be dangerous even deadly for those who can't stay warm out on the streets. if you're fortunate enough to have some gently used coats you're no longer using, we'd like to help you pass those along to those in need. one warm coat drive kicks off friday. there will be donation bins placed all across the bay area. put it inside and your coat will go to someone in need. and you'll have a little extra space in your closet at home. time is 7:21. angry outbursts have happened in court
2. dispute between russia and turkey over the downing of a russian war plane. the pilot who surviferbd, he's refuting claims by turkey that turkey repeatedly warned the russian plane it was violating russian air space. the pilot said there was no warning before the plane was shot down. the other pilot died in the incident. russia says it will not go to war with turkey but is calling the downing of the plane a provocation. turkey announced the two countries will be meeting to talk in hopes of settling the matter. turning now to the paris terror investigation. police revealing the suspected mastermind was planning a suicide bombing targeting the financial district in paris just days after the initial attacks. authorities tracked down the suspected ring leader abdelhamid abaaoud at a hideout north of paris last week. police say he and another man who intended to take part in the suicide bombing of the financial district, they were killed in that raid. the

at least 31 civilians were killed in the assault october 3rd at a hospital run by the medical charity, doctors without borders. vice president joe biden and his wife jill are spending thanksgiving in croatia. vice president biden is expected to discuss the response to the refugee crisis, the fight against terrorism and more in meetings with southeast european leaders. the new york times said the bidens decided to skip their traditional family thanksgiving in nantucket in grief over their son beau six months ago. how you can help president obama decide which california turkey will get pardoned today. also -- >> this thanksgiving weekend the chp will be out in force. it's a maximum enforcement period. officers will be on the lookout for among other things drunk drivers. coming up here, i'll be putting on these drunk goggles to prove just how dangerous it is to drive under the influence.

7:30 and good morning to you live. with the highway patrol in walnut creek. if you're planning on hitting the roads for thanksgiving, you're certainly not alone. highway patrol is out in full force looking for drivers who may be under the influence. alex putting on drunk goggles giving us a thumbs up. he's going to use those to help give us a look at the dangers of drunk driving. he can look good anything. i'm interested in seeing that report. >> a lot of people like oh, i can have one or two and i'm fine. not the case. welcome back. wednesday, november 25th. i'm gasia mikaelian . >> good morning morning. i'm dave clark . let get to your weather and traffic first to steve paulson. >> see alex's breath out there. cold. 30s all over the place.
one of the coldest mornings we've seen since january. some fog has formed near livermore, ukiah. without that breeze our fog can form. our system has moved out. this is chad, cold today. ice puddle on the high jump mat at city college in san francisco. very clear. happy wednesday. and finally my good friend cathy better known as the napa valley chick. my fancy new weather station, you knew i was a geek, right? yes, i knew that cathy. says 29. the white roofs i can see everywhere confirm that. easily 20s. few snow showers in the sierra, the worst is over. they're still going to get flurries up there. many 30s. right at 30, napa airport. santa rosa. san jose,
you've got 41. 34, walnut creek. alamo, mid 30s. danville, black hauck wk, i know hadn't yauck made it to 39. pittsburgh, 31. -- i know antioch made it to 39. pittsburg, 31. it's going to backtrack in from the sierra and visit us on saturday which means we might have to bring in some rain. mostly sunny. the rain moves out. 50s on the temps. cold out there. here's sal. 7:33. a little change in the traffic pattern there? >> a little bit. i get people tweeting me info like best buy union city campers have been there since monday night. thank you for that, kevin. watching the campers at best buy. hopefully all those young men and women, i assume they're young, will get some good deals. let's take a look at what we have now. i'll start off at the commute opwestbound bay bridge. it has improved. we had a
backup about 6:30. then it left. a backup at about 5:30. now here it is two hours later and it's nice and clear heading in to san francisco. we're also looking at a commute here where traffic on san francisco freeways is looking pretty good. northbound and southbound 101 moving along very nicely. westbound 580 which we always have slow traffic is doing well. westbound 580 a little bit of slow traffic heading in to dublin. many of you will be hitting the road later today for this long thanksgiving weekend but remember the chp will also be out and about making sure everyone drives safely. ktvu fox news is live in walnut creek to show us the dangers of driving under the influence. >> good morning to you. yes, the c hp will be on the lookout this weekend. among other things they'll be looking for drunk drivers out there. trying to make sure everyone gets to where they need to go safely. you're probably wondering about the stylish eye wear i have out
here. these are chp issued drunk goggles. when you put them on it's just like you have a .08 blood alcohol level. i'm going to bring in officer daniel hill. i hope you can help me out. you're going to administer a sobriety test so we can prove how dangerous this is to be under the influence. >> this is one of our more common tests. we do the walk and turn. put your left foot on the line and your right foot in front of you. keep your hands down by your side. nine steps heel to toe. on the ninth step you're going to turn around. he's having difficulty holding his balance. he's stepping off the line. >> how am i doing so far? >> pretty bad to be honest with you. >> you're doing real bad, alex. >> would you stop this at this point? >> absolutely. this kind of
thing right here, we'd say it's a little bit too unsafe for you to continue. we'd do something more stationary to evaluate your level. at this point i saw all the clues i needed to be pretty convinced you're over the legal limit and able to be taken to jail. can you imagine somebody like that who can't even walk in a straight line is trying to operate a motor vehicle, trying to maintain their lane positioning, speed. all these things are the reason dui is so dangerous. it takes away your ability to multitask which is essential to driving. >> if you asked me to get over to our live truck, i couldn't get to the live truck. it's hard to imagine someone behind the wheel. >> to clarify, you did very well on this test setting up without the goggles. those goggles really simulate the impairment you feel under alcohol. >> you arrested a thousand people last year during the long thanksgiving weekend. you want to bring that number down this weekend. how do you do it? >> we encourage people to have
a plan and plan ahead. make sure you have that driver. make the right decision. if you get behind the wheel while you're impaired, you're not only endangering yourself, your entire family, but everyone else around you on the road. >> you brought up a good point. along with drink driving, drowsy driving is also an issue during thanksgiving. let's say you have a big thanksgiving meal. you're stuffed. you don't get a lot of sleep. you wake up early for those door buster deals on black friday. whether or not -- what do you see? >> that drowsiness hits you right quick. i will tell you drowsy driving is as dangerous if not as dangerous than being at a .08 or higher. we'll tell
people make sure if you feel drowsy, pull over to the shoulder. get off the freeway. park. take a 15, 20-minute nap. never try to continue driving while you're drowsy. >> we appreciate your time and the work of the chp. maximum enforcement period gets underway 6:00 tonight and goes through sunday night. so all thanksgiving weekend long. be aware when you hit the roads, the chp will be hitting the roads as well. i have to say these guys really drive the point home. you can barely take a few steps on the line. you shouldn't be behind the wheel in that condition. >> can you ask daniel with the chp is it still good for drivers who see someone who is drunk to call 911? or is that not an effective way to get people off the street? >> i think officer hill, let's say i see someone on the roads and i have a strong suspicion
they may be under the influence or maybe drowsy based on their driving habits. we should call that in? >> absolutely. if you see someone impaired or having a difficult time driving, call 911. ensure your safety first of all. give us as much information as possible. if you have the license plate and description of the vehicle and what they're doing. officers will use that information to try to stop that driver and see what's going on. if they're dui, we'll take them in. if they're drowsy we'll tell them to pull over. >> officer hill, thank you very much for your time. everyone drive safe out there this weekend. >> a lot of good information. while the bay area was getting rain, the sierra was getting this. snow. looking at video from interstate 80 near blue canyon. if you're driving that way for the holiday, chains are required on highway 50 and interstate 80 in the sierra. >> heading up 80 is not the
same. really dangerous up here. you want to get your chains on so you can make the safest drive up there. >> there was an accident every 40 yards in some parts of highway 80 yesterday. most accidents caused by drivers going too fast on the snow and ice covered roads. in central oregon, the first big snowstorm of the season causing horrible driving conditions. more than a foot of snow fell in some parts of oregon this week. a winter weather advisory expired at 4:00 this morning. there were crashed all over the place over a major highway in oregon yesterday. in fact there were so many accidents the state police in oregon just told people to stay off the road. you can expect king tides again today and tomorrow. the higher than usual tides and rain combine to create flooding in some low lying areas yesterday. one problem we found was up in marin county, the simpson beach exit from highway 101. yesterday part of that road was completely underwater. over in san francisco, water was lapping on to the sidewalk along the
embarcadero. king tides happen when the new moon or full moon is closest to the earth and lines with the sun. you can get weather information any time with our ktvu weather app, available for smart phones and tablets. our time 7:41. there was an outburst in a courtroom yesterday as a man was charged with the murder of a mural painter. >> that's what happened in the courtroom. 20-year-old marquis holloway cursed and lashed out as the judge announced some of the charges against him. investigators say holloway shot and killed the artist, antone -- antonio raums antonio -- ramos because he was painting a peace mural. >> he was out there painting the mural and he had taken a break and was taking some pictures so he could put it up on a website so he had his camera equipment out there. i believe that's what sparked the whole incident. >> oakland police say they
tracked holloway to his mother's home in stockton. that's where he was arrested. holloway is charged with five counts of robbery or attempted robbery including cases where professional camera crews were targeted. holloway is being held without bail. his arraignment is set to resume monday. neighbors and strangers coming together to help one woman. >> i mean really i am really shocked, surprised, and very thankfully to have such wonderful neighbors. >> how they pulled off a big surprise in san lorenzo. >> good morning. we're looking at a commute where traffic is actually doing okay but it is a little bit slow in some areas. we'll tell you where coming up. >> it's cold. it's not clear. there are still low clouds around especially in san francisco. it's cold out there, even 41 in san francisco.
7:45. it's the time of year bargain hunters have been waiting for. it's almost black friday. campers already camping out in hopes of saving money. shelly cohen from retail mix. what's worth camping out for? >> i think one of the biggest top trends today is going to be absolutely star wars anything. get your hands on that as soon as you can. i think a lot of those products are going to sell out. absolutely star wars items are going to be the hot deals. you're also going to find a lot of products in apparel that are going to be on sale. there's been a lot of cold weather delays so i think anything you can get from cold weather will
be heavily discounted and on sale as well. and electronics of course will always be great friday deals. tvs, electronics, and all kinds of headphones sets and easy devices that could pick up electronically, ipads, those types of things. >> from clothing to computers, these deals seem to be very item specific. should i go in with a specific list or should i say i want to get some sweaters for my sisters. what's the best strategy? >> the best strategy is absolutely go more toward a category than an absolute specific item unless that specific item is differentiated. if you want bose noise canceling headphones, you're not going to be able to look for generic. the sweater is excellent. look for sweaters and see what the best deals are. >> what's worth waiting past black friday, maybe a couple days before christmas? what's better to wait on?
>> probably if i had to say any category that's better to wait on, you're not going to find right out of the gate a lot of high ticket items that are going to be on deep, deep discounts. i'd wait further to the holiday for that. as well as you're going to see continued discounts in the apparel area going further in to the season as well. >> thanks for sharing your time and savoring us some money. -- saving us some money. time now 7:47. last night in san lorenzo something nice happened. neighbors came together to help an elderly lady after thieves stole her christmas directions from her house. a call went out on social media. everybody shows up. it was not just to replace the stolen lights but to make her house sparkle. the neighbors donated money, decorations. they worked together to make their holiday magic while nancy was at dinner with her son and she was
surprised when she came home and saw her house aglow. >> this is wonderful. really i am really shocked, surprised, and very thankful to have such wonderful neighbors. now i can celebrate christmas. now it will be much better. >> i think we can go home now. the neighbors also gave her $300 to help pay her pg&e bill which will probably go up because of all those new lights out there for the holidays. >> that's what neighborhood is all about. sal castaneda, that display, almost like the griswolds, isn't it? >> right, looks great. the great thing is they gave her the money for the pg&e. when you have that many lights, you're going to be getting a big bill. good morning, everyone. let's take a look at the commute. we're going to start off by looking at the bay bridge toll plaza and you'll be able to see the traffic is light coming in to san francisco. no major problems. also looking at the
east bay commute, there's a little bit of slow traffic here on northbound 880 once you past high street, there's bunching up there but it's not that severe. it's better than it normally would be for a wednesday. there is slowing there. if you're driving in san jose, northbound 280 has been looking good getting up to highway 17. 7:49. let's go to steve. >> mostly clear but low clouds are forming. there's not enough of a breeze to stir it up enough to stop fog and some patchy low clouds. it's a cold one. getting a lot of reports at san francisco people are freezing. upper 30s outer sunset, richmond, low 40s and the coldest low this morning, 42. that's the coldest since january 3rd. so it's been a long time since you've had some 40s but that's what we're getting in san francisco and 20s and 30s elsewhere. tony humphrey, dusting of snow in hopland. thank you very much. there was a little dusting of some of the snow.

there are signs it points back toward us by saturday in which case we'll have to increase the clouds. temps will come up but that might bring in more rain. till then it's mainly going to be cold. rain moves south and east. 50s on your temps. mostly sunny. but there's some of that patchy low clouds around and unless that breeze stirs things up tonight, tomorrow morning, oh, my goodness, it will be cold. take us in to thanksgiving. mostly sunny friday. i think we cloud it up saturday and get rain back in here. there will be off and on snow in the sierra. that's all a bonus. >> i just ran out. it is cold outside. >> and ran back in, didn't you? >> i ran back in but it cuts right through. >> very cold for us. the war yrss did it last night. they made history. -- warriors did it last night. they made history . they're on a roll. we'll talk to a reporter from the san francisco business times. he'll tell us the financial impact just because

good morning. thank you for joining us on mornings on 2. i'm dave clark. >> i'm gasia mikaelian. we've been talk about the cold for days now. it's officially here. >> i'll say. that's what every everyone is telling me. i've got 20s, 30s, even upper 30s and low 40s san francisco. still enough, a little bit of a low cloud deck around. we're not clear. if the wind doesn't pick up -- if the wind picks up that will wipe this all out. tomorrow morning drier air moves in. the rain is gone for now.
snow showers, flur ries continue but the cold air is in place. 37 in pleasant hill. already a 3 dog morning. i believe it's going to be a 3 dog night tonight and tomorrow. my high tech snapchat thermometer says 39 degrees in the outer sunset. gabe says it all. 43 degrees in belmont. super cold. showers will continue off and on. coldest morning since january 3rd. 16, 18 degrees cooler than 24 hours ago. we lose the cloud cover and get the cold air. our low is moving away from us but not completely. might backtrack over us by the weekend. very cold air comes right down out of the north. that's going to
continue this cool, cool pattern. mostly sunny. breezy and cool . rain has moved out but 50s. that's it for the temps tonight. very cold. 8:01. have you noticed a little different traffic pat tern? >> yes, we have. it's been lighter than slower. definitely lighter. a lot of people have already taken off. they're not working today or doing something else because the bay bridge toll plaza usually doesn't look this good at 8:00 on a wednesday morning. that's an understatement. it looks great getting in to san francisco. let's take a look at interstate 880 north and southbound. the traffic looks okay here. if you're trying to get to the airport, you should leave a little extra time. this is a picture of a fire in the sunset district. a fewer sent us this photo, on 42nd avenue near judah, a kitchen fire. the fire department is on the scene. does look like no one was injured but the people are outside in their coats and all
that. might want to avoid 42nd avenue as they continue towork on this. oakland airport has been busy this morning, people heading out of town for the long holiday weekend. >> some travelers say they really weren't expecting a crowd. >> if you have a flight sometime in the next hour you should be in pretty good shape. earlier at the airport around 5:30, it was busier than what people expected it to be. you can still see people in line at the outside check-in over there. at 5:30 this morning the security lines inside stretch from the middle of the terminal out to the baggage claim area. that morning rush appears to have died down a bit. the security lines were moving pretty quickly. this is one of the busiest travel days of the year. oakland airport has become a more popular place to fly out of. air travel is up from the year before. if you're flying out of this airport today, you can expect your flight to be completely full.
>> we left our house at 4:30. so there was no traffic but i was surprised so many people were already here. >> especially in the morning. i didn't think people would wake up this early to fly. >> the things we do for green bean casserole. >> the transportation security administration has stepped up security. tsa spokespersons say you can expect more random hand swabbing, bomb sniffing dogs, laptop check and shoe removal even those with pre-check status. give yourself dpru -- extra time to get to the airport. the b.a.r.t. connecter is a good option. they recently had their 1 millionth passenger. if you want to drive and park at the airport, the duty manager says the long-term parking lot
is only 50% full. not sure how long it will stay that way. they're expecting more traffic and more passengers to come through here as the day goes on. it's cold this morning and if you haven't been outside, let me tell you it's cold. that's why santa clara county opened their emergency cold weather shelters early. >> demand for the beds is great. temperatures later in the week will dip in to the 20s. >> janine is at the san jose shelter. it's giving the homeless a warm place to stay. >> it sure here. last night there was still beds available. you could see some of the people who took advantage of getting those extra beds. we were told it was 75% full and that's because the staff here says they don't think the homeless know about it because it was originally not scheduled to open until november 30th but santa clara county leaders decided to
open the emergency shelters last night because of the forecasted temperatures. temperatures are expected to drop in to the 30s the next few days. a couple years back during a cold snap, four people died on the streets overnight in the county because of the frigid conditions. county leaders are trying to prevent that from happening again. we did speak with one man this morning who told us he's grateful to have shelter. >> i feel bad for the ones who come here and get turned away. >> because you know how rough it is. >> they're rough. very rough. especially during the wintertime. wintertime, you got it hard. >> there's a total of seven shelters taking people in a drop-in basis. there's an
estimated 7,000 people in the county. each of the shelters have limited space so the homeless have to arrive at a certain time or else they're out of luck. that's a dilemma for the homeless who actually do work and have jobs. especially if it's like a 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. job. you have to be here at a certain time, sometimes 4 p.m. so they can't make it back in tifement -- in time. it's the case for some of the ones i spoke to. >> that is a real dilemma. with this cold weather, many people in need can't keep warm. as we do every year, ktvu is holding a donation drive to get your gently used coats to people who really need them. one warm coat drive kicks off this friday. we're sharing with you here video from last year in walnut creek. there will be donation bins placed all across the warm area.
they say put your extra coats inside and they'll make sure they go to people who no doubt could use extra layers. new to international head lines, new this morning, isis is claiming responsibility for a new attack in tunisia. a bus attack killed 13 of tunisia's presidential guards. new developments this morning in the dispute between russia and turkey over the downing of the russian war plane. the pilot is refusing claims by turkey that turkey repeatedly warned the russian plane it was violating turkey's air space. pilot says there was no warning before the plane was shot down. the other pilot, he died in the incident. russia says it will not go to war with turkey but they're calling the downing of that plane a provocation. turkey announced the two countries, turkey and russia, will be meeting soon, hoping to settle this matter. turning now to the paris
terror investigation. police are revealing the suspected mastermind was planning a suicide bombing that targets paris financial district just days after the initial attacks. authorities tracked down the suspected ring leader abdelhamid abaaoud at a hideout north of paris last week. police say he and another man who intended to take part in the suicide bombing of the financial district, they were killed in the police ring. police are not going in to specifics but say the planned attack was set for last tuesday or wednesday. france in the meantime is deploying extra police and troops now to protect and safeguard next week's international climate change conference in paris. president obama will be there. he'll be among the 140 world leaders expected to be at that summit. france will impose road restrictions. they'll also control the borders which are normally open to other european countries. 120,000 security personnel will be stationed all
across france. meantime in belgium, lights -- life starting to get back to normal. much of the bus service getting back to work today. schools also reopened. hundreds of additional police officers are assigned to protect the subways and schools. in the past two weeks more than two dozen people that have been detained suspected of having terrorism links. only five suspects remain in custody. the eighth paris attacker, salah abdeslam, he is still out there on the loose. time is 8:10. new this morning u.s. investigators say some maernss -- some americans involved in the deadly bombing of a hospital in afghanistan have been suspended from duty. the u.s. believed the building was a government compound taken over by the taliban. according to the report the u.s. relied on the description of the compound provided by afghan forces. a
military commander says the u.s. personnel involved violated rules of engagement. at least 31 civilians were killed in that assault october 3rd on a hospital run by the medical charity, doctors without borders. vice president joe biden and his wife jill are spending thanksgiving in croatia. vice president biden is expected to discuss the response to the refugee crisis. the fight against terrorism and more in meetings with southeast european leaders. the new york times says the bidens decided to skip their annual traditional thanksgiving in nantucket because of their son's death. the chp cracking down this holiday season. in 20 minutes, you're going behind the scenes to see the maximum enforcement taking place this thanksgiving. >> plus the warriors make nba history in the process. what did that mean for the bay area economy? something bigger than just a game.
>> good morning. we're looking at the east bay commute and seeing some slow traffic on 880 northbound. looks like it's slowing downheading up to high street. >> mostly sunny out there. few clouds around . patchy fog but the main message, the screaming message, it's cold out there and it's going to stay cool. we'll have the numbers coming up. through thanksgiving weekend at sleep train
24 points. nine assists. >> especially accomplishment. any time you can do something in the history of the nba with all the great teams that have suited up and the great legends and players, it's pretty special. >> so humble. steph curry after he and the golden state warriors won their 16th consecutive game to start the new season, new nba record. what does the war yrss' success mean for -- what does the warriors' success mean as a whole? joining me, sports business reporter for the san francisco business times. good morning, ron. first of all, can you talk to me about ticket prices for last night's game? >> courtside seats going at about $1600 is one price i saw. further up the bowl you can get some for only $500. >> it's turning in to more of an event now.
>> a lot of the games, i think it still can be affordable if you find the right resale ticket on stubhub or nbatickets.com. >> let's talk about oakland as a whole. oakland doesn't have the setup like the at&t ballpark in the city does. i don't imagine there's a lot of dining and after event happening at the coliseum site. is there a benefit to oakland as a whole? >> i think having people come in, there's another cost with the parking. >> they get you. >> but there's a lot of drive in, park and leave kind of situation. i think there is some benefit if nothing else it's a positive image of oakland. >> that's sort of intangible, isn't it? because so many other times we see oakland in the news, it's for much sadder stories. let's talk about the fact that the warriors are planning to move across the bay in to san francisco. i'm guessing ticket prices will go up. what do you expect to see? >> a lot
of interest, both advertiser-wise and fan-wise. you already see the warriors carving out space at oracle right now. there's an old storage space way up high that they carved out this year for a new suite. they're generating receive new. american express is sponsoring the courtside seating. i think it's going to carry through to san francisco. whether someone like clorox that supported an oakland team in oakland follows them, that will be interesting to see. >> how much of a loss will it be for oakland? >> i don't know if it will be an economic loss at all. there's this talk of a reparation payment. i don't think it's going to go that far. it's an interesting argument. the warriors aren't the only -- >> we're talking about possibly the raiders. i know the as have been trying to leave for years.
it's more of an image issue. no city likes to lose a major sports team. finally, let's talk about the cold hard reality, i'm guessing at some point the warriors are not going to win. what will happen? how quickly does it all go away or is there still an afterglow that continues? >> did you just say the warriors are not going to win? [ laughter ] >> if they do lose a game, what happens then? >> i think everything continues pretty much along the same lines. this is a great team of people gathered together. they built a great team from upper management on down to the court. when joe came in, his group came in and bought the team. they did everything like tear the walls out of offices and replace them with glass. so i think that's just an image that floats throughout the organization of transparency and one loss, it's one loss. as long as they win the championship. >> maybe ticket prices come down a little, maybe i can take
my family again. thanks for joining us for mornings on 2. time now, 8:18. sal, public transit, things changing tomorrow? >> the systems are on different schedules. remember with thanksgiving tomorrow b.a.r.t. will operate on a different schedule. according to bart.gov, they'll operate on a sunday schedule. parking will be free and we're looking at some of this video here. this happens all the time. most people are not commuting tomorrow so most people who use b.a.r.t. will be getting to the station and not necessarily following a schedule but those schedules are available online and that goes for other transit systems. most are on sunday or holiday schedules. golden gate ferries will not be running and that's because of thanksgiving. back on friday to take you shopping, everything is back to a normal schedule. this is a look at interstate 880 north and
southbound. you can see the traffic is moving along slowly. kind of looks like a normal wednesday morning commute getting in to downtown oakland. there's no accident. when you get to the bay bridge, it's nice and light getting across in to san francisco. we're also looking at the commute from the carquinez bridge to the mcarthur maze, taking 18 minutes. that's about as low as it gets for that stretch. at 8:20 let's bring steve in here for today's forecast. >> mostly clear out there. just cold really the main message. rain has moved out till maybe saturday when it might backtrack in here. until then, except for patchy low clouds, it's still going to be mostly clear and cold. 20s, 30s, 40s. some of the fog right be forming. our rain is done. snow continues in the sierra. cold smoke wednesday . at kirkland, mount rose is opening today as well. another 16 inches of snow for some.
it's so cold here in the outer richmond, the dogs wanted their kibble heated up. i can't say i blame them. happy day before thanksgiving. thank you. we appreciate that . your pets aren't too spoiled. we do have a little bit of snow shower activity continuing. might just be flurries at time but they'll continue. 30s for some, low 40s for many. coldest low in san francisco since january 3rd. 39, 41. take your pick. 24-hour temperature change 16 degrees colder in santa rosa. double figures here for everybody including san jose and livermore and concord. there goes our low. it's now down toward central sierra and taking its track north of las vegas. it's going to rotate around. some of this amazing wrap back in. that's why i'm a little
concerned lake county, northern napa county. some of that can sneak back in. more likely it will be as we head toward the weekend. a lot of dry and cold air coming in. some low clouds around. maybe a few high clouds to the north. breezy, cool. rain movers south and -- moves south and out of the picture. temps hit 50, 55. that will be it for about 2 minutes then it will start to drop again, especially tonight when it's cold. very cold. patchy fog. watch out for that on thanksgiving morning. other than that, cold, nice, mostly clear. clouded up on saturday, sunday. we have a consumer alert this morning about some food that was being sold at costco. the packaged food item now at the center of an e. coli out break. >> student loan debt. more people are defaulting. narrator: when you see this truck,

260,000 applications filed this week, 12,000 less than last week. it's a sign companies are cutting fewer jobs. student loans debt has climbed to more than $1 trillion, more than credit card or autoloan debt. usa today reports more than 11% of that money is overdue. for federally backed loans, nearly 20% of borrowers are in default, meaning they're at least 90 days late on a payment. the education department says it's working to get more borrowers in to its new program which adjusts the monthly payment based on a person's income. the $9 computer got a lot of national attention when it was first introduce d with a kickstarter campaign in june. today the company said it's going to make it even cheaper. >> on monday only the $9 computer becomes an $8 computer. the computer known as chip is about the side of a credit card and will be on sale for cyber monday.
the company says chip is infinitely hackable and can be used for anything. customers can now use the extra dollar for a game of ski ball, two stamps, or six chicken mcnuggets. where are you spending your thanksgiving and who will you be with? >> i'll be here anchoring with sal castaneda and i'll not be alone because a lot of americans will not be at the dinner tables with their families. instead they're spending their thanksgiving with their work families. i mean their co-workers. according to a survey by career builder and all recipes, 22% of workers plan on working this thanksgiving, up 16% from last year. 3600 workers were surveyed. 20% plan to spend the day with coworkers in or out of the office. >> i won't be here but i'll be thinking about it. time is 8:27. next on mornings on 2, what some members of congress want to do in case crab season is called off for

today is in fact one of the busiest times of the year. chp is reminding you to obey the rules of the road. >> they're everywhere this morning looking for aggressive drivers, drunk drivers, if you're not buckled up. alex talking about the maximum enforcement period. >> that's right. good morning to you. that maximum enforcement period, it gets underway at 6:00 tonight, goes all the way through the long holiday weekend. here we are, it's the day before thanksgiving. a lot of people will be hitting the roads later on today and throughout this weekend and the chp, they'll also be out there as well. they're looking for all sorts of violations. one of the big ones is drunk driving. that's something the chp wants to crackdown on this holiday weekend. with that being said we're joined here by officer daniel hill with the chp. you had about a thousand dui arrests last thanksgiving weekend. you want to bring that number down. what's the strategy? >> the strategy is really to
reach out and remind them. we know you're going to celebrate. make sure you do that with a plan. get a driver. ridesharing services, pub lic transportation, or stay the night where you are. whatever you do, don't get behind the wheel after drinking or using drugs. it's a really simple formula. you can't get arrested for dui or cause a fatal collision. >> this is a busy time of year on our roadways in california. also a very dangerous time of year. last year in the state we had 45 people killed in crashes during the thanksgiving holiday weekend. that is far too many to the have in this state. how do you try to prevent any deadly crashes this holiday weekend? >> the number one thing you can do to keep yourself safe in the car to wear your seatbelt. almost half of those deaths were involving someone who didn't wear their seatbelt. those crashes could have been prevented. those fatals could
have been prevented. we're asking people to slow down, don't drive aggressively, don't drive recklessly. be safe behind the wheel. drop the phone. avoid distractions. we know black friday is coming up also. people are going to be out there with very little sleep after a big thanksgiving dinner. we want to remind people drowsy driving is just as dangerous if not more than dui. if we feel drowsy, pull over, take a nap, then go home and go to sleep. >> all that black friday shopping then they hop in a car. not a good combination. officer daniel hill with the chp. appreciate it. maximum enforcement period gets started tonight at 6:00. lots of extra officers out on the roadways, out on the highways looking for among other things drunk drivers, reckless drivers and folks who are not wearing their seatbelts. hard to imagine people still not buckling up. but it happens. 8:33. let's get you out the door and we'll begin with
steve paulson. we've been talking about the cold. >> not going anywhere. it will be here tonight and tomorrow. the rain has. that's moved out. still low clouds around. maybe patchy fog . possibility of some of this moisture wrapping back in. i think that would happen more likely in to friday and saturday. today mostly clear. that cold air has moved in. it's just about everywhere including coast bay and inland. suzee, alone degrees on my back porch in san mateo. light snow showers will continue off and on. they'll still continue up there with fresh snow. 30s for many. still san ramon, 35. san jose made it to 41. half moon bay, 44. san rafael says her. bodega bay made it to 49.
petaluma, all in the 30 tonight. there goes our low. it's going to dumbbell around. it might even rotate back in. some of the moisture on the western side of that could clip lake county, maybe eastern solano, contra costa. it's close. you can see some of that starting to sneak back in. that kind of concerns me. i mentioned some clouds north and east. for most it will be dry and cold, mostly sunny. breezy and cool. cool or cold . patchy fog and clouds off to the north. 50s on the it temps. it's a very chilly day. all right, sal . how are things? >> slow traffic in oakland. oakland has some slow traffic in the 880 area. word is cal trans
crews are doing repair that's slowing traffic down. it's not a huge backup. not the worst i've ever seen but if you want to avoid the whole thing, use 580 which is absolutely wide open for you. today you don't have to worry about choosing 580 and wondering which one is worse. 580 is good. let's take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. 580 is wide open. 8:36. let's go back to the desk. holiday travelers heading to the sierra are being advised to be prepared. this is interstate 80 near blue canyon. the chains are required on highway 50 and interstate 80 in the sierra. highway patrol is also warning drivers to slow down and be very careful on the slick icy roads. >> heading up 80 is not the same as driving especially going up over donner pass. you want
to get your chains on so you can make the safest drive up there. >> there was an accident every 40 yards. the bay area is also dealing with higher than usual king tides right now. the king tides and the rain combine to create flooding in some low lying areas. one problem spotted marin county, the stinson beach exit from highway 101. yesterday part of that road was completely underwater. in san francisco the water was lapping on to the sidewalk along the embarcadero. king tides expected again today and tomorrow. they happen when the full moon is closest to the earth and lines up with the sun. don't forget you can get all the weather information you need any time with the ktvu weather app. it's available for both smart phones and tablets. pg&e is holding a public meeting on its plan to remove hundreds of trees in palo alto.

shooting and killing a teenager. jason van dyke is charged in the death of laquan mcdonald. the video is disturbing and may be hard for you to watch it. this video shows mcdonald walking down the middle of the street. he appears to be veering away from officers when he is shot. mcdonald went down right there but the officer van dyke, he kept shooting. he shot mcdonald 16 times. police say mcdonald had a knife. the shooting occurred in october of last year. last night there were protests across chicago. people upset about what they saw on that video. some have criticized the state's attorney for taking 13 months to charge the police officer and release that dashcam video. in the end the state's attorney decided to charge van dyke with murder because it was determined the teenager did not pose an immediate threat of great bodily harm to that officer.
>> of the eight or more officers on the scene, it was only the defendant who fired his weapon. >> the city of chicago already agreed to a $5 million settlement with laquan mcdonald's family. meantime, in minneapolis people were still protesting the police shooting of an african american man there. even after five demonstrators were injured by gunfire monday night. hundreds of demonstrators held a silent protest yesterday including lying in the streets. protesters want video released of 24-year-old jamar clark 10 days ago. monday night, three white men wearing ski masks fired shots at the protesters. police arrested three suspects in connection with that shooting. there was an outburst in court yesterday as a man was charged with the murder of a muralist in oakland. >> [ bleep ] [ yelling ] >> that was the scene as
20-year-old marquis holloway cursed and lashed out as the judge announced some of the charges against him. investigators say holloway shot and killed antonio ramos as ramos was painting a peace mural. they say the motive was robbery. >> he was out there and he was painting and he had taken a break and was taking some pictures so he can memorialize it and put it up on a website so he has some of his camera equipment out there. i believe that's what sparked the whole incident. >> oakland police tracked holloway to his mother's home in stockton where he was arrested. holloway is charged with five counts of robbery or attempted robbery including cases where professional camera crews were robbed. an east bay community will come together again to honor the memory of a hayward teenager who was hit and killed while on her way to work. it's called the hayward plunge. they hold an annual turkey swim fundraiser

[ laughter ]
good morning, everybody. or maybe a little bit of those yams. dave and i could go on so we're going to stop this right now. let's go to 880 north and southbound. traffic is a little bit slow. they were doing emergency pothole repair on 880 south. looks like they've cleared that up because things are moving a lot better than they were even just a few minutes ago. they had a big pothole causing problems out there. this is a look at the 80 bay bridge toll plaza. you can see traffic is moving along very nicely. getting in to san francisco, no delays in or out of the city. we're also looking at the maps, northbound 280 does look good getting up to highway 17. no major problems there. now the weather . here's steve. >> did you see the tweets? somebody wanted me to tell you about cal train. >> yes, cal train is on a saturday schedule. before we get to our weather, i know it's cold. tonight will be cold. there's snow showers off and on probably all the way in to the weekend
for the sierra. i think clouds get back in here friday in to saturday. we have a record set here. this is the hurricane, the strongest hurricane so late in the season ever for this quadrant, the pacific, northeast pacific, so the water temperature down there is extremely warm. my fear with this or at least the track of it takes sandra over cabo san lucas saturday. be advised if you are traveling down there. that looks to be the track. wind 100 miles per hour. stronger gust. expected to take the turn around cabo san lucas for copious amounts of rain. water temperatures there are very cold here. 53 to 55. 57. i would expect maybe 49, 50 for bodega bay. 51 for san francisco. it would not surprise me as we head through the next couple days because the airflow continues to come out of the north.
there's no really mechanism to warm that up. they're going to continue to stay very cold. snow showers off and on for the sierra. i don't see this ending. the low that's responsible is moving in to nevada and that will continue to send in little spokes in a wheel. i would look for flurries or light snow showers in to probably thanksgiving, even friday. 30s, 40s tonight in wind protected areas. if there's no fog, it will be very cold. still a couple upper 30s. even antioch made it to 39 this morning. low 40s for some. it was in the 40s for many. that's the low . watch how that spins in here. as it rotates back around it's going to stay around here and a little piece of that energy may move back toward us. that would be friday, saturday, as another low comes in and meets it. there's a lot going on in the friday-saturday timeframe. until then look for very cold conditions, mostly sunny, breezy and cool. that wind will pick up a little bit later. patchy fog giving way. clouds, i mention ed this for lake county.
watch those coming back down from the north. they should stay east and north of us but might be a little close for some. clear and cold tonight with 20s and 30s for many. otherwise we're looking for a nice thanksgiving. just not going to be very warm. then i think a lot of cloud cover comes in friday. more snow in the sierra. a little warmer as we head to the weekend. tomorrow will probably be the coldest day. time is 8:54. an e. coli out break linked to costco chicken salad has now spread to seven states including california. the centers for disease control doesn't know what's in that rotisserie chicken salad that's causing the outbreak. at least 19 people have become sick including two people who had kidney failure. this e. coli strain is very dangerous and may even be life-threatening. health officials say if you bought rotisserie chicken salad at costco on or before last friday,
imagine a world where the holidays were about people again. where doorbusters referred to loved ones pouring through the front door. and the four-letter word that defined the season was l-o-v-e and not s-a-l-e. what if the only reason to wake up at 3 a.m. was to spot a reindeer in the sky? and coupons were only used to redeem one more kiss? that's the world t.j.maxx, marshalls and homegoods stores live in. where there's no need for sales because we offer amazing prices on popular brands everyday. and where you can always save on thoughtful gifts thanks to weekly arrivals of new products. let's put more value on what really matters. this season bring back the holidays with t.j.maxx, marshalls and homegoods.
welcome back. a new hateew -- a new health study says put nuts in your diet. researchers say diets improved when people ate nuts and you didn't gain extra weight. researchers say nuts are filling, it prevents you from eating too many and loading up on calories. to keep those added holiday pounds off, try this. counting your bites. a new study found people who counted every bite of food and each swallow of a drink lost weight. the new york times reports researchers asked volunteers to actually record, write down the bites they took.
then they asked them to reduce it by 20%. by the end of the month, they found the average weight loss to be 3 and a half pounds. but the researchers are stressing this kind of weight loss approach doesn't work if every bite is a dessert. >> are you serious, dave? actually counting the number of bites? >> i'm not kidding you. >> warrior victory, i believe the number now is 16 to start this nba season. it is an nba record. jim barnett coming up next. send him a tweet. announcer: if you'd give thanks for a better night's sleep...
